With all the gyms available all over the world, obesity is still a major problem.

Flashy advertisements that offer a quick way to lose weight and show your abs are one of the major reasons why so many people fail in their quest to get back into shape.

Arnold explains, after his heart surgery, he had to take it one step at a time to get back to normal. From learning how to breath to retrain his lungs and walking with a walker, he sometimes felt he would never get back to living a normal life. Never giving up. in just three months Arnold was back on set filming the latest Terminator movie.
